So Motu notice of a video of Hashmi railing against “those investigating” the prime minister’s family was taken by the Chief Justice. The video showed Nehal Hashmi threatening the investigators of the case with “consequences“, the court has summoned the former senator to appear before the special bench of the apex court overseeing the implementation of the Panama Papers verdict.

The Attorney General was asked by the bench. “Are you aware of what is going on?, It seems that the government’s self-proclaimed spokespersons let no opportunity for maligning the courts slip by” Justice Ejaz Afzal said.

It is not our custom to bring our children into our fights” Justice Sheikh Azmat pitched in. He further added “Mr Attorney General, what kind of people involve children in their fights?”

To which the AG Ashtar Ausaf responded”The cowardly kind,”.

No, not the cowards — it is terrorists and mafia [members] who do such things” responded Justice Azmat.

Congratulations Mr Attorney General: it seems that your government has bested the Sicilian Mafia

Justice Ejaz Afzal said “We have constituted the joint investigation team (JIT) and we are not afraid of any type of consequences“, responding to rumours that the heads of the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan and the State Bank were pressured by an unidentified caller into submitting the names of two candidates for the JIT who have recently been accused of ‘bias’ by the ruling Sharif family.

He warned that “Your government has been creating problems for us” in addition to that he said “Strict action will be taken against whoever mocks the judiciary
